Christmas trees, wreaths, hangings, centerpieces, table settings, light displays…There is a plethora of options to add touches of warmth and festivity to your home in a sophisticated way!

1. Indoor Christmas Décor

For an elegant, harmonious, balanced look, pick up a color scheme or décor theme and stick to it when embellishing your home for Christmas.

As Christmas trees are the timeless symbol of the most beautiful and magical time of the year, it is always a smart idea to start decking your space with your Christmas tree and then, sticking to the already chosen color scheme and/or theme, add décor to your home.

Actually, when creatively approached, decorating for the holiday season can be easy and affordable. Work with what you already have. Beautiful everyday items filled with candles and silver, gold, blue, or purple leftover Christmas ornaments can turn into unique centerpieces. Strategically poisoned, they will embellish your living space and lend it a sophisticated look.

When beautifully arranged, even groupings of empty bottles of varying height, size, and color complemented by candles, ribbons, and Christmas balls can do the job.

Another easy, affordable solution is to use simple picture frames, ribbons, bows, and Christmas ornaments to create hanging décor for bare walls. Not to mention that using shimmering ornaments, ribbons, and bows you can create fabulous wreaths of different size, which can be positioned practically everywhere in your home, from the front door to the chair backs.

Generally, always consider using candles in one way or another, they add warmth, style, charm, and romance to any space at any time. Plus, candles can be easily rearranged to lend the space a completely different look.

As Christmas family dining is a key element of the holiday magic, use table settings and centerpieces to add extra touches of refinement to any Christmas décor. Whether in the general Christmas color scheme and/or theme chosen for the holiday season or in a different one/red and white, gold, or silver are favorite choices/ , with some forward planning,  creating a wow-worthy table setting is not that difficult. Even only some beautiful crystal bowls filled with sparkling ornaments can add glamor and take the table setting to the next level! Adorned chair backs, fine china, ornaments and tinsel in clear containers for extra glitz, sparkling pinecones embellished with beads…there is a plethora of ways to add touches of luxury, sophistication, and drama to any Christmas table.

2. Outdoor Christmas Décor

Traditional or modern, outdoor Christmas décor helps add to the magical holiday spirit and festive atmosphere.

LED light displays, elegant Christmas trees, topiaries, beautiful garlands and wreaths, pre-lit or not, shimmering Christmas ornament hangings or groupings positioned in urns, and single oversized balls or candy canes are only a part of the ways to embellish your outdoor space in a statement, sophisticated way.

Lanterns filled with Christmas ornaments and embellished with greenery, ribbons and bows also make stunning outdoor décor.

Note that outlining garden structures/arches, trellises, arbors, statues, and more/ with pre-lit garlands is a simple yet elegant option to create a seasonal focal point.

Generally, when used in unexpected ways, even classic décor can add tons of personality and touches of style and elegance.

Glowing spheres, whether in groupings placed in different containers or scattered around any outdoor space are a solution that helps add touches of elegance and sophistication and create a sense of magic. Alternatively, grapevine orbs wrapped in lights have the same fascinating look.
